A prominent northern constellation, Perseus lies in the Milky Way between Cassiopeia and Auriga. One of the original Greek constellations, it represents the character who was sent to slay Medusa, the Gorgon. In the sky, he is depicted holding the Gorgon's head, which is marked by Algol, a famous variable star. Every August, the Perseid meteors appear to radiate from the constellation.
